This group, which lives in a town in Senegal, was formed more than five years ago in this town. Their principal activity is the sale of services. This loan will be used to buy computer equipment (computers, mouses, keyboards, central units, mother cards) in order to strengthen the borrower's equipment in his cybercafé, as well as to buy products for maintaining computer equipment. The loan will allow him to respond to customer demand, given that internet is more and more in demand in certain areas of the region.

This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008. UIMCEC is a government-regulated microfinance institution whose mission is to improve the revenue and well-being of families through access to financial services, allowing principally women and young adult micro-entrepreneurs living in rural and semi-rural areas to develop their revenue-generating businesses and supporting them in becoming financially self-sufficient.
This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
